“You call yourself a free spirit, a wild thing, and you’re terrified somebody’s gonna stick you in a cage. Well Baby, you’re already in that cage — you built it yourself. And it’s not bounded on the west by Tulip, Texas or on the east by Somaliland. It’s wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.”—Breakfast at Tiffany’s
I’m thinking about making a list of new year’s resolutions. I wasn’t going to, because more often than not I end up failing miserably to follow through with them or simply forgetting about them. Or both.
I think I set myself up for failure the past years though. I make too many, or I make them too complicated. If I make any this year, I’ll try to stick to a few really important ones…
I don’t know. We’ll see. If I do make any, I’ll probably post them here, so…
Now, to work on my Statistics homework! Because it just hit me again that school starts back up in 4 days. Death.
you called me after midnight, must have been three years since we last spoke. i slowly tried to bring back the image of your face from the memories so old. i tried so hard to follow but didn’t catch the half of what had gone wrong said, “i don’t know what i can save you from”.
i realized that the one you were before had changed into somebody for whom i wouldn’t mind to put the kettle on.
innocent imitation of how it would be; if one the music entered, you did not retreat. in my imagination, you are cast in gold your image a compensation for me to hold.
things seem so much better when they’re not part of your close surroundings. like words in a letter sent, amplified by the distance.
Stay and watch the stars come out and then the sun as they all fade away. I’ll sing you every song I know if it will make you want to stay. And then I’ll say that I missed you and these words, they’ll convince you to stay.
And even when we’re miles and miles apart, you’re still holding all of my heart. I promise it will never be dark, I know we’re inseparable. We could run forever, if you wanted to. I would not get tired, because I’d be with you. I’d keep singing this song until the very end.
